THE INDEPENDENT: ‘Undercover footage of an industrial chicken farm in Poland has revealed staff boasting about killing sick animals “just like Hitler at Auschwitz.” The film shows one worker bashing the tiny birds to death on a metal rail before throwing their bodies into buckets. It also reveals staff picking up large numbers of dead or rotting animals from the floor of the huge facility in the western county of Strzelce-Drezdenko. Poland is Europe’s biggest producer of poultry meat and exports around 65,000 tonnes to the UK every year.
Animal protection organisation Open Cages said the crowded and filthy conditions on the broiler farm were similar to those in this country. “The only difference is the level of cruelty and violence shown in the video which we have not seen so far in the UK,” said spokeswoman Kirsty Henderson. Open Cages has been unable to confirm whether any chicken from the farm reaches the UK. The video was filmed over six weeks by a farm worker, “Adam”, using a hidden camera.
